The Angel Who Lost Wings


https://youtu.be/Dn51LxzSHf0

Once upon a time, there was a couple that had been so in love that they wanted to share that love with a small bundle of joy. So, they tried their best to have a baby and, to their delight, succeeded. But after the baby was born, they realized he wasn’t developing as quickly as he should have. When he was taken for tests a few years later, it was discovered that he had autism.

Upon this realization, the father started coming home later and later, leaving the mother alone with the child all day. One day, he came home drunk, alcohol on his breath, and suggested to his wife having another baby. Not long after, she discovered she was pregnant but worried about this kid having autism as well, considered abortion.

When she found out she was having twins, she knew abortion was out of the question. Soon after she gave birth, the couple discovered they had two healthy, normal baby girls. They had forbidden their autistic son from playing with the girls, as they were worried he might harm them. But one day, the wife noticed him playing with the girls, reaching out for the older one’s hand. Enraged, she scolded him and slapped him, going so far to ask the housekeeper to take him to the other room away from the girls. After she had calmed down and she went to the twins. She was shocked to find the cookie held by her older twin was her boy’s favorite. She realized that her boy was only trying to share his cookies with his sisters. The mother burst into tears shamefully.

Despite how their mother wanted them to treat him, the girls still carried a deep love for their brother. They would teach him how to read and write at home, even in spite of him being bullied at school. One day the older twin couldn’t take it anymore and stand up to the bullies. She yelled, “He’s an angel! He may have lost his wings, but he’s still an angel nonetheless, every bit as sweet and pure. He’s not used to this human world, but he’s still the best brother.”

Reading this Chinese story on the Internet, I can’t help shedding tears, and it reminded me of the song- An angel by Declan Galbraith. In the song, he talks about wishing he were an angel, and he had a pair of wings. I think we are all angels, maybe, sometimes we are not perfect -we lose our wings but we are still angels.

I wish I had your pair of wings
Had them last night in my dreams
I was chasing butterflies
Till the sunrise broke my eyes
Tonight the sky has glued my eyes
Cause what they see’s an angel hive
I’ve got to touch that magic sky
And greet the angels in their hive

Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you
Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you

And all the sweet honey from above
Pour it all over me sweet love
And while you’re flying around my head
Your honey kisses keep me fed
I wish I had a pair of wings
Just like last night in my dreams
I was lost in paradise
I wish I’d never opened my eyes

Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you
Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you

But there’s danger in the air
Tryin’ so hard to be unfair
Danger’s in the air
Tryin’ so hard to give us a scare
But we’re not afraid

Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you
Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you

I wish I were you
I wish I were you
